Dr. Michelle May will guide you out of the food-focused, diet-driven downward spiral that leads you to eat, repent, and repeat.

Called ''the antidote to ineffective dieting,'' Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat is a rare prescription for optimal health of the body, mind, heart, and spirit. After twenty years of yo-yo dieting, physician Michelle May discovered a peaceful, joyful relationship with food.

You'll learn the truth about nutrition and how to stop using exercise to earn the right to eat. You'll finally experience the pleasure of eating the foods you love--without guilt or bingeing.

In down-to-earth language that conveys her compassion for people who are sick of overeating and dieting, Dr. May offers you unconventional strategies for eating fearlessly and mindfully. With your new, powerful patterns of thinking, you’ll live the balanced, vibrant life you crave.
